This plugin implements the very special feature: text input in the different languages and keyboard layouts, without having them installed on your local system. Only the requirement – browser should support Unicode fonts to display the whole range of characters.

Plugin is tested in Mozilla FF 1.5&2.0, IE6.0&7.0, Opera 9.02.
JavaScript engine is considered stable, although it is still under the development. Known issues are described below.



No configuration is available for this release.

Known issues

  • Incomplete Opera support – it does incorrectly handles non-alphanumeric keys in keyboard events, like layout-dependent key codes, mess control key codes with char ASCII codes (i.e. Del gives code 46, means '.' (dot) symbol). Also, Opera does not allow to process Alt key pressing.
  • memory leakage and bad input performance after several reloads.


I can't get it to work at all. There's no virtual keyboard that appears when I use it… Does anyone know what I am doing wrong and how to get this plugin to work?
